RTC Live: Georgetown vs. MissouriPosted by rtmsf on November 30th, 2010
Game #50. RTC Live is back at Sprint Center in KC for some BBQ n’ hoops, as Georgetown travels to a semi-road game vs. Missouri.
Exactly one week after last Tuesday’s top five showdown between Duke and Kansas State, RTC Live returns to Sprint Center in Kansas City for another matchup of ranked teams, as the Missouri Tigers square off against Big East contender Georgetown in the John McLendon Classic. Mike Anderson’s team is off to a fast 5-0 start, including wins in Cancun over Wyoming and La Salle, as they get set for this semi-home tilt. The Tigers are an experienced team led by juniors Marcus Denmon and Laurence Bowers, while juco transfer Ricardo Ratliffe has been outstanding on the glass, averaging 9.6 boards a game to go with 10.8 points per contest. The Hoyas will counter with a backcourt attack led by Preseason Big East POY Austin Freeman and Chris Wright. Freeman, at 20.2 points per game, has lived up to the hype and trails only Kemba Walker and Casey Mitchell in scoring in the Big East. John Thompson III’s troops include eight players who average 15 minutes or more per game, proving that he has the depth to keep up with Anderson’s frenzied “40 Minutes of Hell” style. Both teams are hungry to hand the other their first loss of the season, so expect a hard-fought, physical night on the hardwood.
